A Horsham-based hair stylist was invited to receive a national award at a London event beating hairdressers from 65 other stores.
Marcos Garcia, who works in West Street’s Rush Horsham, was named stylist with the highest number of regular clients at an annual Rush awards ceremony held in London last month, which he and his colleagues attended.
He received his award from Oritse Williams, from British boy band JLS, after facing competition from 65 other Rush salons across London and the rest of the South East of England.
The Rush Horsham team said: “It felt incredible to be recognised by Rush. It is a great opportunity for us to reap the rewards of our hard work from the previous year.
“We work hard and are a very dedicated team so are delighted to be given this opportunity to shine.
“We are so proud of our team and hopefully our success will continue in 2013.”
One of Rush Horsham’s regular customers told the County Times: “I love getting my hair cut at Rush. The staff there are really friendly and welcoming and I always get the cut I’m hoping for.
“There’s a really comforting homely vibe there too which is perfect when you want to relax and be pampered for an hour or so.”
